Several SAN-supported bills died as the New York legislature adjourned its 2019-2020 legislative session. To follow is a brief summary:
- Legislation (S.B. 7044) to exempt historic vehicle owners in several cities in New York from paying the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District supplemental registration fee failed to pass the Senate Transportation Committee. Currently, owners of historic motor vehicles in certain areas must pay a $25 per year supplemental registration fee.
